Can I use this professional development program to advance on the pay scale?

Unfortunately, no, this program is not being offered for units at this time.

I'm unable to attend all of the group meetings. Can I still participate?

Yes, though it is highly recommended that you attend most of the meetings.

Can I just attend the workshops without going to the meetings or participating in the job shadow?
